BWL... great idea but, first, I'll have to make friends with some good ol' boys. Rap... sounds like quite a partaaaay.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.

The big doin's are starting at the Idaho Legion Hovel. The Glorious Fourth is coming so more tanker cars of beer are being routed onto the Legion Siding, a couple of boxcars of meat for grilling are sitting in the Yards chillin', and the boys and girls are out working on The Boss -- the biggest grill in the American West.

The Boss has a total grill surface only slightly smaller than that of two football (any sort) fields and a cricket pitch, cunningly designed so that two people can flip burgers and burn hot dogs without help. Shucks, one person can do it in a pinch! The charcoal used to come in by the carload, but air pollution laws forced the switch to propane and that comes in by the carload now; four cars, the average amount needed, are sitting by the reefers in the Yards.

Up on the hill The Biggest Show In Idaho is winding up. Raucous rock bands have disturbed my peace since I got back and fireworks are being trucked up every couple of hours. It's rumored that they have a small air-burst nuclear weapon this year, but I doubt it.

Meanwhile, the Elks Lodge has turned the parade over to the Old Town group. It will kick off at 10 a.m. and wend its way from Old Town to the parking lot at Holt Area (a/k/a The Dome or The Minidome). Floats will float and candy will be thrown to those viewing, even though city ordinance says to hand it, not to throw it.

Fireworks stands proliferate. Legal "safe and sane" fireworks are those which don't fly into the air or explode. This is honored in the breech. Sometime in the coming week the Fire Department will delineate those areas thought to be especially prone to wildfire and will ban fireworks there.

All in all it's shaping up to be a gigantic anticlimax.

Gnu, get a couple sheets of plywood and a handful of two-by-fours and cobble yourself together a mock pickup truck to go in your driveway. Doesn't matter how accurate a facsimile it is as long as it has a tailgate to lean on while you drink beer and shoot the shit with the good ol' boys. Even if you no longer need a truck for trucking, and even if you're no longer able to drive, you still need a tailgate to lean on now and then.

My driveway looks 'lonely'. And the neighbour... you know, George... has yet again gotten the apartment complex manager to whipperfuck all the undergrowth under the pines out back so NO ladybugs for me!!! Asshole he is. Stunnedasmearse he is. Chemhead poison sprayin idiot! And, this year, due to the fungi that killed all the Double Impatiens last year (I did get, by chance, at a good price, 192 Snapdragons last year), all I have is petunias so aphids may kill them all... I will not use pesticides and I can't get up woods to gather ladybug larvae. BTW, George mowed his lawn 3 times in the last four days. Either he is fightin with the wife or he is an old, miserable, ignorant, senile... have a nice day eh.

It's kinda like a purse, Ebbie, but not satin lined or with a clasp and lots, lots smaller and better organized.

I shall now stay indoors in a windowless room all next week....

Huck Finn does provide a great escape. I've read it several times.

BWL, any tomatoes cooked on the vine I can meet and top here, I imagine. But I won't, I don't want to go dig through the tall grass to see what is up. That's for this weekend. It won't be pretty, the hornworms have had free reign in the garden so far, but it ends on the 27th. After that, everything gets weeded, gets enough water, gets organic fertilizer, and gets treated the way my garden expects to be treated.

gnu, you sound like a candidate for the declutter threads. That is sometimes a daily diary of accomplishments, and people who read that thread (many who lurk and rarely say anything) appreciate the updates. There have been times when people went back into old posts to find dates and lists and such that they know they posted. For now, put your cash in the bank. And think about sharing your eBay and Kijiji successes with the x-hoarders.

I rescued 11 baby opossums this morning. With the blessings of my co-workers, even. Within an hour we had spirited them off to a wildlife foster person who will release them when they're big enough, probably come September. What a day. MOM would have loved to have seen those little guys, except for the fact that I had to pick them off and out of their dead mother in the street. But even that, in an organic way, was interesting. I've never been able to look into a marsupial's pouch before.

I, for one, am glad you have decided not to ever be Hungarian again. Your contribution to the goal of ending ALL world Hungarians is appreciated. DId you know that Shakespeare felt the same way? He said that Cassius had a lean and Hungarian look.

Of course, the worst part is child Hungarians. Allowing a child to go Hungarian in the world is really sinful because he carries the mark of that experience through his whole life, you know.

I wrote a great post last night. It incorporated everything Mother is about, it defined the human condition and ways to better it, it presented positive proof that Chongo Chimp and Shame McBride are locked away kissin' and smoochin' in a secret love nest, it presented a clear path to world peace now and in the future, it gave a clear and succinct definitive definition of "folk music".

It wouldn't post and wouldn't post. So I rebooted the router and then it was gone....

I lay awake all night, singing sad silent songs and my soul keening in woeful lamentation that it was now gone forever to that Great Bit Bucket In The Sky, that without my guidance humanity would continue on its present primrose path to perdition.

But as one of my old girl friends used to say, "Tomorrow is another day, I hope, and I vow that I'll never be Hungarian again."

But again- they are precious.

I shall miss my truck, especially when the snowbanks are over 6', but I shall enjoy the $19k in the bank and the not having to spend $4k a year for depreciation, insurance and the maintenance that comes after the 5 years are up (that's serious beer money!)... and the fucking grief of having to clear ice and snow off of it to move it to the street when the snow removal guy gets here and shoveling out the box and...

After I shook hands with the guy, I went into Mum's house to get the third key and told her the truck was sold. She started crying. She knows for sure now that I can never get back to the woods I spent every minute in that I could until the arthritis took hold. I explained again why I had to sell it and, as is her way, she came around... she's a grand lady, she is. Had to be. She raised the likes of me.

Naked. Some folks got naked here last winter and run around outdoors. We used them to hold the street lanterns until the warm weather arrived and they started to droop a tad but not too much, so we froze 'em up again and will reuse them next winter. Most folks who get naked and run around outdoors in the winter can be reused for three or four winters iffen we're careful and don't use 'em up too fast.

Here in Southern California, the heat is making people crazy and driving them to go naked.

Back in winter, as I recall, it was a bit chillier, you know, and some folks wore sweaters, but the cold weatherand the rains and fog also, strangely enough, drove some people crazy and made them go naked.

Things got better in the Spring, though--it became pleasant and balmy, light warm breezes blessed the land and made green things spring forth and bright blooms of flowering plant celebrated the season of renewal. Pulses began to stir and people went a little crazy and went naked.

I guess there's just no pleasing some folks, huh?

In contrast to yesterday's 100°F swelter, today's weather is cloudy with intermittent light rain and only 73°F. What a difference a day makes. The down side is that cooler temperatures make it much more difficult to make up lies about how hot it is, and it's not raining enough to make up lies about flooding. But it'll probably rain enough to provide for a healthy mosquito hatch in a few days, and mosquitoes are always good for a lie or two.

The cab that was to take us to the house yesterday was late (it overheated) so I was able to adjust to the heat a bit. I saw a fire hydrant chasing a dog and the guy who runs the barbecue joint across the street (lousy barbecue, by the way) was carrying the ribs outside for a few minutes to cook in the sunshine. The air conditioning at the courthouse apparently had a literal meltdown and the bailiffs were keeping things cool by using subpoenas as fans in the courtrooms. There is a police order against heated arguments,too.

Temps down as low as -62F, winds, well, I don't know how high they were, but high!

Anyway, I'm back in sunny, beautiful, blue-sky-dappled-with-white-clouds, Idaho.

The first box arrived last week; there is another awaiting pickup or redelivery. Pat doesn't sell her quilts; they are held in a Sacred Place Of Trust to await Their Call, except for Project Linus and Quilts of Valor. I sold some of the family plate to finance this trip and now we are eating off of paper towels. It was, however, well worth it.

One place we did visit was Dangle, County Concealedcarry, the ancestral home (if such a term can be so applied) of the notorious McBrides of Blind River. While nearly all of the place is a ruin, as you can see some of Shame's family still lives there.

Did you know that deltas can be far inland and still be deltas? There is land in the northeastern portion of Louisiana that is actually considered to be part of the Mississippi River delta. It isn't downstream by the mouth. Same with the Nile. It's way upstream that is considered "delta," distinct from Mouth. You may be confusing rivers with other deltas and mouths that are sometimes much closer together . . .

ANything to be right, I suppose, Sir R. Follow the Shannon down past Limerick to where the shores of Ballybunion gaze across the water at Kilbaha, and the Shannon empties herself into the sea. It's a mouth, if not precisely a delta. More a capital "D" than an ∂, if you see what I mean.

The Shannon flows easy down through the center of Ireland, an unbroken path of kindly waters (mostly) from Belleek in the north all the way to Killaloe in the south and on to the delta. This summer I am going to explore some part of it for a week, stopping in at villages and pubs and rising with the sun (if I can) to follow the river's path.

This is an easy slow-moving sort of vacation but I think it will be just grand.
